Junior Netball

Selection Trials

Selection trials are held for all junior teams. Details of selection criteria are detailed in the Barwon Heads Netball Club Selection Policy and the club takes a strengths-based approach to assessing players, ensuring teams are versatile and competitive.

Selection trials for teams are usually conducted in February each year. 

Selections are not finalised until after the 3rd round in each season.  This allows coaches to make adjustments if necessary to accommodate the needs of the team.


New and existing players are invited to trial each season. New players are always welcome.

Awards and Presentations

The home and away season for juniors culminates in a Presentation Night where all awards are presented.


All players must have a current Barwon Heads Football and Netball club membership, have current VNA registration and 1 parent or guardian must also have current club membership.

VNA registration can also be completed online through Netball Connect.

Our coaches typically come from within the club and they are appointed by the committee after consideration of suitability for the role.
All junior coaches are supported by the committee and senior coaching personnel l to ensure that our junior players are learning the most up-to-date aspects of the game and sporting techniques.

Our club places a strong emphasis is on participation, team-work, sporting resilience, development of skills and overall fitness – and of course, having fun.  We endeavour to provide a culturally, emotionally and physically safe and inclusive playing environment for all children.

We also require all coaching personnel, volunteers and team manager assistants to undertake training and accrediation relevant to their coaching role and in accordance with league and national child safe standards.

To learn more please see our Child Safe Policy or the Netball Victoria website.

Junior Development

We encourage the development of all of our juniors.

Talented juniors are identified and mentored by senior netballers and coaches in a Development Squad. The squad trains with the A and B squad and these players are gradually eased into senior netball – when they are ready.
